2x3 Ft Nyl-Glo US Marine Corps Flag
The Marine Corps emblem approved in 1868 originally had the crested bald eagle found around the world, a globe to signify service all over the world and a fouled anchor depicting battle in the air and on land and sea. The fouled anchor and the eagle can be traced back to the early Continental Marines. It included a small ribbon in the eagle's beak with the Marine Corps motto, Semper Fidelis. The globe is attributed to a symbol of the British Royal Marines.
In 1954 Dwight D. Eisenhower approved the design for the seal of the USMC. The American Bald Eagle was included at this time to replace the crested eagle. In 1955 this emblem became the official seal of the US Marine Corps and is correctly shown on Marine Corps flags.
